The First Prize in IEEE Region 8 Student Competition goes to our Student Kristjan Stopar
Our student Kristjan Stopar won the first prize award at the IEEE Region 8 Student Paper Contest (https://ieeer8.org/student-activities/spc2020result/). Together with his student colleagues Pia Žnidaršič and Urban Košale he developed a device for kinesthetic navigation of the blind and visually impaired. The final competition of the IEEE Region 8 Student Paper Contest has been organized in the framework of IEEE MELECON 2020 international conference (http://melecon2020.org/). Under supervision of assistant Jernej Kranjec and Prof. Aleš Holobar, Kristjan won the first prize award, despite being only in his 2nd year of the 1st Cycle Bologna Study Programme Computer Science and Information Technologies. Congratulations!

Prof. Dr. Aleš Holobar had an invited speech at The 11th Nanotehnology Day in Ljubljana on May 9, 2014. His speech on human-machine communication drew the attention of Saška Jazbec, a journalist of RTV Slovenija. She organised TV shooting of research achievements in the System Software Laboratory of Maribor. We demonstrated our own computer tool for a decomposition and analysis of muscle signals (EMG) and sensory devices and methods that we developed for unobtrusive measuring of functional-health parameters at home. The information (in Slovene) can be accessed at:
